Authorities said two of Yeager's daughters were inside the pool to hold down the pool as she drove home from a friend's house. She told police she took the pool to get inflated.

Yeager was charged with two counts of endangering the health or life of a child and two counts of reckless conduct. Police also cited the Illinois mother for failure to secure a passenger of the age of 8 and under the age of 16.

She was released from the Dixon Police Department after posting bond.
